Bugger’s 3rd birthday was last Sunday… woot! We had a superhero party at the beach and had a grand ole time. There will be an actual, for real post on the party later this week. This is Bug wearing his pinata as a hat. It is also my new favorite picture ever. Silly boy.
Summer in Florida means that it is bright & sunny in the mornings and early afternoon with a rain shower rolling in around 4:00 or so. Then it clears up for sunset. Generally speaking. Not this year. Well, at least not for the last week of May and the first week of June. Thanks to Tropical Storm Andrea, we had something like 10 straight days of grey skies and rain, rain, rain. It felt like we were in Seattle, just way warmer. It was depressing. Bug and I spent some time playing in puddles because playing inside was no longer fun after so many days!
The upside of all that rain was 1) maybe the water table was raised enough to where we won’t have any water restrictions this summer and 2) my rain lilies are SO HAPPY.
Peanut butter jelly face! This is how my son eats (and has always eaten) his sandwiches: he separates the two pieces of bread, scrapes all of the peanut butter off and eats it, scrapes all the jelly off and eats it and then eats each piece of bread. This makes for a messy lunch. And, also, a long lunch.
This wasn’t on my Instagram feed this week, but on my work’s. Strawberry Napolean. I’m sharing it here as a sneak peak for my next recipe post. I’m photographing it at work today, so hopefully I’ll have it posted next week! Talk about perfect summer dessert. This, folks, is it.
